I hope everyone is doing well and striving to achieve a healthier lifestyle everyday.

Today I will quickly share a short list of why Jillian Michaels' workout videos fit my life;

  • I gotta say what I like best about workout videos is the versatility. 
  • Spontaneity-I like that I don't have to set a certain time to workout. I can workout as late or as early as my little heart pleases. I have been known to workout at 1am or even 4am
  • Accountability-I have a gym bag in the trunk of my car that has an extra pair of workout tennies and clothes. Therefore, wherever I am I have no excuse not to workout.
  • Accessibility-Most of Jillian Michaels' workout videos can easily be found on YT. So even when out of town as long as I have wifi/internet access I'm all set.
  • Length-Jillian Michaels' workout videos range from 25-45mins in length. Which means I can easily fit a workout before and/or after work.
  • Convenience-Its no secret I don't like gym. Which makes workout videos for me perfect because I can do them without leaving the house
However, I still strive to go out for a run or hike every now and then as a bonus to my workouts.

Ode to Lorrie

About two weeks ago I learned of the passing of a fellow blogger, Lorrie of The Token Fat Girl. I've been meaning to write this post for the last two weeks but I just haven't had the words. I write this with a heavy heart because Lorrie's blog was the first blog I stumbled upon when I first considered blogging say 3 years ago. And this was back when she still blogged at My All Natural Weight Loss

I first started eating loaded oatmeal because I found out about it via Lorrie's blog and used the recipe she shared and haven't looked back since.

According to her husband's tribute, Lorrie passed away from cardiac arrest the day after her 30th birthday :(

I found Lorrie to be contagiously cheerful and so full of life and my heart truly goes out to her loved ones and friends. I didn't know Lorrie personally but it honestly feels like I lost a friend.

In honor of Lorrie's memory her husband set up a memorial/fundraising page via American Heart Association. Please feel free to contribute any amount you can.
